OMG Abuja is HOT! Essentials for the Hamattan(Female)

Aint nothing going on but the HEAT, im surprised no one has released a hit song yet about hamattan after all we always sing about rain, snow etc. maybe its because it is so annoying anf for the past few days, words on everybodys lips is 'Abuja is Hot!!'. luckily the holidays are fast approaching and lots of people will be skipping town for cooler climes. but for those of us that are stuch here for whatever reason, do not despair, i got you. so for the period here are a few suggestions i have for beating the heat..... Enjoy!


Stay hydrated. drink water as often as possible. during the holidays i know there will be a lot of eating and drinking and we all know that alchohol leaves you dyhydrated so on average 8litres a day for this period will help keep you refreshed.


i have always been a big fan of sunglasses and i wear mine every where but now its not just a fashion or style essential it is an actual essential because the sun is shinning and you need to protect your eyes from the rays. depending on your face shape you can choose from a wide selection.


its not cute when you use cut outs of papers to cool yourself. Get yourself a nice handy fan that you can carry around with you at all time. they are cheap and light and they work very well at weddings and as we all know, its wedding season.


This has got to be one of the cutest trends that found its way in to the 00. wide selection of beautiful sandals are available in different colours and they really let your feet breath. you can show off your cute feet, your pretty manicure and they go very well with sun dresses.


this outfit has a way of hiding a multitude of bulges and it is airy and light. so its going to be doing 2 jobs, seeing that we are going to be eating alot this christmas, the sundress will help us hide the inevitable bulge, while keeping us cool and stylish.


i dont recommend you buy this, just beg borrow or steal from your boyfriend or hubby afterall there is love in sharing and erm much as they pretend, men love to see us in their clothes.... *wink*


if the heat really bothers you, give your 22 inch weaves a rest and go short crop like me. just be certain you go to a very good salon/hair dresser, cos this is not a time to have bad hair days, the holidays should have everyone looking good at every point.


desist if you cant pull it off, but if you can, lucky you. Enjoy.

Next Blog will be for the guys so stay posted.....
